Hillary Clinton...we do not agree on a lot. It takes a village to raise a child.....we do agree on that!
Dianne and Donnie are part of the village we share trying to raise Emma, Abby and John Brady. Mel and Ellen also share that village with us in raising Lawson. I believe children thrive in a circle of people that love them. The bigger the circle the better. So...today is a happy day...our circle remains unbroken and we get to say Happy Birthday Dianne!
THEN --- 1998 Kim received her Master's degree from Alabama
Dianne, Donnie, Kim and Brady

I was reminiscing as I was watching John Brady play yesterday afternoon. I don't have a lot of time to think with three little Lawson's running around and always asking questions but he did make me think of his Daddy. This picture was made right after Christmas 1978. Brady got the Stretch Armstrong for Christmas and I can remember it being one of Brady's and John's favorite toys. Seeing how far they could make Armstrong stretch was a nightly ritual. They actually did stretch "ole" stretch until he refused to stretch anymore but it took several months. When he finally quit stretching they couldn't wait to open him up and look inside. Brady is about three months younger than John Brady in this picture.
THEN AND NOW......Stretch Armstrong did come back a few years ago. It didn't seem to be the hit it was back in 78. I guess he needed to do something that required batteries! Notice John's shoes and shirt...both are back again...sadly John's thick black hair is gone and I doubt we will ever see it again! Well, maybe not sad the beard is gone.
